Crete is the largest of the Greek Islands and has been a hugely popular holiday destination for some time.  Many holidaymakers book Crete holidays year after year having fallen head over heels with this fabulous island on their first visit.

Steeped in history, full of character and simply oozing authentic Greek charm, Crete is a destination where you really can relax and unwind.

If you enjoy basking on the beach, then Crete will have you spoilt for choice with the miles of soft golden sand and small pebbly coves on offer.  From beaches thronged with bars and sun worshippers to peaceful and secluded beaches just waiting to be discovered, Crete holidays will offer more than enough opportunities for you to chill out under the gloriously warm summer sun.

Popular resorts for luxury holidays in Crete include Elounda, Aghios Nicolaos, Rethymnon and Lyttos Beach. There is a good range of five star hotel accommodation throughout these resorts, as well as some excellent spa facilities.  The island of Crete is and excellent choice for a spa holiday as the pace of life is relaxed yet there are lots on offer to do and see.

If you enjoy a spot of sightseeing then you will be spoilt for choice in Crete. From picturesque medieval harbours to impressive archaeological sites, you can spend your time away from the beach or spa learning a little about the history of ancient Crete.

Take time out to visit the amazing Minoan Palace of Knossos, and pay a visit to the Archaeological Museum in Hereklion. People have inhabited the island of Crete for over 4000 years, and it is well worth seeing some of the amazing sites and buildings that have stood the test of time and remain today.

Whether you have spent your day sightseeing of snoozing on the beach, chances are that as evening approaches you will have an appetite for some good food. You will almost certainly not be disappointed as Crete is home to some fabulous restaurants and some great local cuisine. Making use of the abundant olives from the olive groves that sprawl across the island as well as the many aromatic herbs that grow all around the countryside, Cretan cuisine is rich in flavour and truly delicious. Find an atmospheric taverna or dine alfresco overlooking one of the pretty harbours. Of course, all tastes are well catered for throughout the island.

Evenings in Crete are as fun and exciting or as peaceful and laidback as you want them to be. From peaceful harbours to strings of music-filled bars and clubs, Crete really does offer something for everyone.

All in all, Crete holidays are relaxing and enjoyable and it is no surprise that Crete has been a holiday hotspot for many years.
